Why Free Software Is More Important Now Than Ever Before

Much has changed since the beginning of the free software movement: Most people in advanced countries now own computers — sometimes called “phones” — and use the internet with them. Non-free software still makes the users surrender control over their computing to someone else, but now there is another way to lose it: Service as a Software Substitute, or SaaSS, which means letting someone else’s server do your own computing activities.

I agree with RS for the most part, but, it's not always doable in the world we live in. I also read your comments on the Mint forum Orb, and agree with you also.
